Hi Luis,

Until I get a D800 and try my lenses on it I will disagree with some of this thinking. I have many many lenses, some over 40 years old that I use on my D3X all the time. I see mostly better resolution photos with nearly every lens on the D3X versus the D700 and D300. I will say that the photographer will need better shooting technique and more attention to focus and exposure. I think that's the problem we're seeing with the D7000 and not because it's making good lenses look bad.

Here's a photo I just took with my old 80-200mm f4.5 lens on my D3X. I shot the photo wide open at f4.5 and applied absolutely no post processing. First the full frame and then the 100% crop. I bought this lens in 1978.
